How Pallet Flow Racking Works
The basic idea of a gravity flow system, which is a first-in-first-out solution, works like a conveyor belt. Pallets are placed in the back end of the rack aisle and gently flow down to the front of the aisle on the opposite end. Each time a pallet is removed from the front of the aisle the subsequent pallets move forward to take their place. Watch a pallet flow system in action here.
Benefits of a Gravity Flow Pallet Storage System
Gravity flow pallet rack systems provide many benefits to warehouses. Some of those benefits include:
- Allow for easy sorting and distribution of commonly used SKUs
- Excellent for large volume SKU movement
- Help employees avoid injuries by keeping them further away from the forklifts that are operating on the input side of the aisle.
- Quick and easy access to the outgoing products, as well as quick and easy replacement of outgoing products.
There are obviously several benefits to using a gravity flow pallet rack storage system in your warehouse, and at AK Material Handling Systems we can help you select the perfect system for your warehouse.
